Adobe Photoshop/Adobe Question


Good day
Got the following questions
1. I designed a logo in illustrator and had to convert a part of it to PNG to get a transparency. Then I exported it to Photoshop. The original colors CMYK 100 98 14 17 are automatically changed to CMYK
100 99 23 10. What do I do in this instance to keep the colors consistent.
What are the different options for getting the color back to the original 100 98 14 17.

Hi Sunil,

I'm pretty sure that a PNG can only be RGB. So the colors are interpreted into CMYK values.

I don't know why you need to do it this way. You can have transparency in Illustrator (not sure what versions).

You might try exporting as a TIFF instead. Then duplicate the "Background" layer and then delete it and set the "copy of Background" to the transparency you want.
